Types of Kufr

There are many types of kufr

Kufrul-’Inaad: This type of kufr is done by stubborn disbelievers. Stubborn disbeliever is someone who knows the truth, admits its but refrains from making a declaration. Allah says: Throw into Hell every stubborn disbeliever [Soorah Qaaf (50), Ayah 24] 

Kufrul-Inkaar: This type of kufr is done in complete deniel. The non-believer denies with heart and tongue. Allah says: They recognize the favors of Allah, yet they deny them. Most of them are disbelievers. [Soorah Nahl (16), Ayah 83] 

Kufrul-Kibr: This type of kufr is done in arrogance and pride. Iblis is the best example for it.

Kufrul-Juhood: This type of kufr is done in rejection. The person knows and acknowledges in his/her heart about Islam but rejects to say so with his tongue. This type of kufr is done by Muslims who do not practice Islam such as salat, zakaat etc. Allah says: They denied them (OUR SIGNS) even though their hearts believed in them , out of spite and arrogance. [Soorah Naml (27), Ayah 14] 

Kufrul-Nifaaq: This type of kufr is done in hypocrisy. It applies to someone who pretends to be a believer but doesn’t accept Islam with heart and mind. They conceal their disbelief. Such a person is called a MUNAFIQ or hypocrite. Allah says: Verily the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of Hell. You will find no one to help them. [Soorah An Nisaa (4), Ayah 145] 

Kufrul-Istihaal: Disbelief out of trying to make HARAM into HALAL. This applies to someone who accepts as lawful (Halal) that which Allah has made unlawful (Haram) like alcohol or adultery.. 

Kufrul-Kurh: Disbelief out of detesting any of Allah’s commands. Allah says: Perdition (destruction) has been consigned to those who disbelieve and He will render their actions void. This is because they are averse to that which Allah has revealed so He has made their actions fruitless. [Soorah Muhammed (47), Ayah 8-9] 

And some other types are Kufrul-Istihzaha, Kufrul-I’raadh and Kufrul-Istibdaal
